    A good friend of mine is moving to TN and she LOVES music. Another friend gave me a scrapbook page to decorate for her and I wanted to put song lyrics on there about friends or saying goodbye or remembering the good times. Disney or not, it would be appreciated! :)

    TIA!

    My favorite for someone leaving is one we sang at the end of a mission trip in high school. This is the chorus from the song "Friends are Friends Forever" by Michael W. Smith.

    And friends are friends forever
    If the Lord's the Lord of them.
    And a friend will not say never,
    'Cause the welcome will not end.
    Though it's hard to let you go,
    In the Father's hands we know
    That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends.

    The entire song is about a friend moving away and can easily be found with a google search if you wanted more of it.

    I was going to post that song as well! I've actually been singing since last night! :) I think it is by Michael W. Smith.

    First thing that comes to my mind is James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend"

    I love this song about friends. It's Garth.

    A Friend To Me

    Well you and I
    We're buddies
    And we've been since we first met
    Me and you
    Well we've sure been through
    Our share of laughter and regret

    Lord knows we've had our bad days
    And more than once we've disagreed
    But you've always been a friend to me

    You can be so stubborn
    There's times I think you just like to fight
    And I hope and pray
    I live to see a day
    When you say I might be right

    And there's times I'd rather kill you
    Than listen to your honesty
    But you've always been a friend to me

    You've always been
    Time and again
    The one to take my hand
    And show to me it's okay to be
    Just the way I am
    With no apology

    Oh you've always been
    And you will 'til God knows when
    Yes you've always been a friend to me

    Thank You For Being A Friend
    ( Andrew Gold )

    Thank you for being a friend
    Traveled down a road and back again
    Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant

    I'm not ashamed to say
    I hope it always will stay this way
    My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

    And if you threw a party
    Invited everyone you knew
    You would see the biggest gift would be from me
    And the card attached would say
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend

    If it's a car you lack
    I'd surely buy you a Cadillac
    Whatever you need any time of the day or night

    I'm not ashamed to say
    I hope it always will stay this way
    My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

    And when we both get older
    With walking canes and hair of gray
    Have no fear even though it's hard to hear
    I will stand real close and say
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend

    And when we die
    And float away
    Into the night
    The milky way
    You'll hear me call
    As we ascend
    I'll say your name
    Then once again

    Thank you for being a friend

    This comes from girl scouts, but is very true:

    Make new friends, but keep the old,
    One is silver and the other gold.

    Not exactly song lyrics, but could make a embellished square, topper, etc

    That's What Friends Are For by Elton John

    And I never thought I'd feel this way
    And as far as I'm concerned
    I'm glad I got the chance to say
    That I do believe I love you

    And if I should ever go away
    Well then close your eyes and try
    To feel the way we do today
    And then if you can remember

    Keep smiling, keep shining
    Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
    That's what friends are for
    For good times and bad times
    I'll be on your side forever more
    That's what friends are for

    Well you came in loving me
    And now there's so much more I see
    And so by the way I thank you

    Oh and then for the times when we're apart
    Well then close your eyes and know
    The words are coming from my heart
    And then if you can remember

    This is another Michael W. Smith song. It's one of my favorites. It's called Pray For Me.

    Verse 1
    Here is where the road divides
    Here is where we realize
    The sculpting of the Father's great design
    Thru' time you've been a friend to me
    But time is now the enemy
    I wish we didn't have to say goodbye
    But I know the road he chose for me
    Is not the road he chose for you
    So as we chase the dreams we're after

    Chorus:
    Pray for me and I'll pray for you
    Pray that we will keep the common ground
    Won't you pray for me and I'll pray for you
    And one day love will bring us back around
    Again

    Verse 2
    Painted on a tapestry
    We see the way it has to be
    Weaving thru' the laughter and the tears
    But love will be the tie that binds us
    To the time we leave behind us
    Memeories will be our souviniers
    And I know that thru' it all
    The hardest part of love is letting go
    But there's a greater love that holds us

    Chorus:
    Pray for me and I'll pray for you
    Pray that we will keep the common ground
    Won't you pray for me and I'll pray for you
    And one day love will bring us back around
    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

    Won't you pray for me and I'll pray for you
    Pray that we will keep the common ground
    Won't you pray for me and I'll pray for you
    And one day love will bring us back around
    Oh, I know that love will bring us back around
    Again

    Well, since this is the DIS...!

    How about You've Got A Friend In Me, by Randy Newman? (From the Toy Story movie)

    You've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me
    When the road looks rough ahead
    And you're miles and miles
    From your nice warm bed
    Just remember what your old pal said
    Boy, you've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me
    You've got troubles, well I've got 'em too
    There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
    We stick together and we see it through
    You've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me

    Some other folks might be
    A little bit smarter than I am
    Bigger and stronger too
    Maybe
    But none of them will ever love you the way I do
    It's me and you
    And as the years go by
    Boys, our friendship will never die
    You're gonna see
    It's our destiny
    You've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me
    You've got a friend in me

    There is a song by Dan Seals, I can't remember all the words right now but the main line is "If I had only one friend left, I'd want it to be you". Just a thought.

    I don't have the lyrics but what about "When You're the Best of Friends" from The Fox and the Hound. I'm sure you can find the lyrics to this Disney song. THis was playing in my car when I said good bye to a friend who moved away.
